Re: Which Goku Is A more likable Character: Funimation Goku Or Original Japanese Goku:

I consider them the same character even with a few lines that are changed, everything plays out the same, the meanings behind the messages are the same outside of specific differences like Vegeta going to fly away and Goku's reason for not killing him. But even then, it's not such a deviation that ...

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

Wow, this is everything I have wanted from a DB/Z Movie release... Sadly I'm not convinced they will see an international physical release, let alone push for a series remaster. But that's the pessimist in me talking, there is still a chance for Toei to take their shot at HD, and if this is anything...

Re: Who are your least favorite characters of the entire franchise?

Probably Goten, I really don't see his relevance or what he adds to the story, but at the same time he is thrown in my face more than other characters I dislike so he would have to be my least favorite. There is probably someone I dislike more but I am struggling to think of them!

Re: Which Goku Is A more likable Character: Funimation Goku Or Original Japanese Goku:

I like Funimation's (Kai/Super) Goku more cause he comes off as more mature which I think is due to the voice Sean schemmel uses as it also fits Goku's look more than Nozawa's voice and acting. It's worth noting that I prefer watching anime in English so that may have something to do with my choice...

Re: Would Raditz and Lunch/Launch make a good couple?

Urmmm... they'd be an odd couple I guess? It really depends on how they wrote it. It's a pretty arbitrary question as there is very little to talk about.

I would prefer Lunch and Tien Shinhan as a couple anyway.

Re: GT is canon as much as Super is

Nowadays I view discussions about canon the same way I view discussions about power levels: The man responsible for all this doesn't care enough to make any of it consistent so people shouldn't put that much thought into it. That being said. Unless Toriyama or Toei come out with an official stateme...

Re: Which Goku Is A more likable Character: Funimation Goku Or Original Japanese Goku:

Original Japanese Goku, no contest. He has more depth, more flaws which are honestly shown, and more personality. I wouldn't even put Funi Goku in a category with Superman, as modern Superman has a lot more depth to him than that would give credit to. I'm not sure about the Kai English Dub as I've n...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super: Broly" - Animation Hub [Updated: 20/07]

Absolutely flawed by the trailer. Feels like a real victory after campaigning for this approach for years. Seriously amazing. Updated the OP with the trailer, some new staff details, and the designs from V Jump and the Comic Con panel. It makes me wonder why they went for this approach, they certai...

Re: Would you say Linda Young got better or worse over time?

Iconic isn't a synonym for "great". Iconic in this context requires the performance to be widely known and recognized as great. Having a woman's voice doesn't mean Freeza sounds androgynous, he sounds like an older woman. Linda Young always sounds like she's performing. She's over the top cheesy. A...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

So, it's probably already been posted about, but according to Sabat on Twitter , not only is that actually Chris Ayres back as Freeza (WOOT! Though I'm fully expecting some of the more intense screams might be done by Daman Mills in the film proper), but that's also Dameon Clarke as Paragus. Wasn't...

Re: 2 Brolys

Alternate skins would be the most sensible option. Broli's main fighting forms, specifically his big LSS state, are still more or less the same, and even his outfits are still mostly similar. That's how I'd expect him to show up in Xenoverse sooner or later, as a new skin/outfit for standard Broli,...

Re: Would you say Linda Young got better or worse over time?

Even if you think it's good, "iconic" is a step too far. Young's portrayal wasn't androgynous. It wasn't the Ziggy Stardust of DBZ performances. It was an older woman playing a character who is supposed to be an uppercrust gentleman/psychopath, but instead comes across as an over the top vaguely se...

Re: Would you say Linda Young got better or worse over time?

I am a fan of Linda young , I think that she is great as frieza , and I think she was iconic as genkai. I think the same way you do. I couldn't think of a more fitting person to voice Genkai, they really got the cast spot on for Yu Yu Hakusho. She was a good fit for Genkai, and I didn't think her a...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Secondly - sorry, the trailer gives away too much! We now know that there'll be some backstory filler and that Broly shows up, trashes Vegeta, trashes Freeza and trashes Goku, very likely prompting Goku to use UI (because there is no way in hell that isn't happening) I could have told you all that ...

I thought it was interesting that 17 wished for all Universes that had been erased to be restored... Could that also bring back the 6 universes that were originally erased by Zeno before the ToP?
